Very good news for Valentine's day..:hearts:

Congratulations "Super Mario" :smooch:

I could not have a chance to see live in my country , but our reports here help me get in the match and so excited..Thanks to all of you :worship::worship:

here is report from ATP :wavey:
http://www.atptennis.com/1/en/2008news/marseille_wednesday.asp

"Australian Open finalist Tsonga, the No. 7 seed, fell down to earth when he lost to former World No. 7 Mario Ancic of Croatia 7-5, 7-6(3) in one hour and 45 minutes on Centre Court. Despite hitting 11 aces and winning 85 per cent of first service points, the 22-year-old Tsonga could not convert the two break point opportunities he created. Ancic (pictured right), currently No. 135 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings, had previously lost Tsonga at ATP Masters Series Paris in November 2004. The 23-year-old Croat will next meet Russian qualifier Teimuraz Gabashvili in the second round."

We have different problems :p it seems sendspace doesnt refuse you, it is your area' net limits you ;) mine is that the server of sendsapce refuses my request even tho I could open the mainpage. In fact sendspace allows users to down its files by straight and download-tools to do some files at the same time, what a pity, so long, refused again and again, tireless ;)

There is a little shot hightlights flv provided by open13 site, do you need to make a thirsty watch first? ;)

If Mario wins tomorrow, he'd be ranked somewhere around 75-80.
If Mario loses, he'd be ranked somewhere around 90.

i wonder whether he'll play that challenger in france. on the one hand, it would be great match practice, but on the other, his level is clearly to high for any of the other players in that challenger to give him a tough match and maybe he should rest up and be 100% for zagreb

I prefer Mario to skip the next week for a rest. Such a good form is really nice while dont make it exhausted. But if Mario keeps playing I think he knows himself better than us :p

Mario needs it more. That's why I'm cheering here instead of on Andy's site.

But I won't kill myself if he wins it either.

It was a good tournament to comeback the serious stuff are still to come. he moves so well on the court it was a real pleasure to see him play in this tournament it remembered me a bit of why I like tennis.
Anyway all I hope is that he stays healthy all the season to return in the top rankings.
